Trnka Shorts: Mature Mastery

Friday, October 5, 2018 at 9:00pm to 10:24pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

Ithaca Premire 1962 – 1965 > Czechoslovakia > Directed by Jiří Trnka
In the 1960s, at the height of his artistic powers, Trnka turned to increasingly dark, surreal, satirical, and politically defiant subject matter. The result was a string of visually innovative, modernist masterpieces that encompass dystopian science fiction, religious parody, and, in his final crowning achievement, an impassioned protest against state censorship.
